During last year’s lengthy lockdown , I delighted in looking through older family photos, specially those of our wanderings and travels. Tapping through thousands of shots became an escape and also a source of joy. I love photographs and their ability to transport me back to places I once visited and experiences I once had.
This beloved quarantine past time led to me finally compiling three trips worth of photos and precious memorabilia into a hefty pocket-page travel album! The trips I documented are from 2018-2019 when I went to a “no kids trip” with Kayo to Hong Kong (2018) and to Singapore a few months after, as well as our epic family trip to Hong Kong (kids’ first time there!) in 2019 for Arts Month and Disneyland!
It was impossible to include every single photo from all these aforementioned trips, of course. Fitting them in a single album was already an enormous feat, but I managed and I take so much joy in seeing it all come together. Naturally, there are details about this album that I love. Let me share some of them with you…
See the album in its entirety in this flip through video I made accompanied by some descriptions of what I included in these brimming spreads.
I have no idea when we’ll be able to travel out of the country again. I’m hoping it will be sooner than later, but for now, I’ll travel back in time to far away places through the pages of my travel album. I hope you enjoy it too!
